Striatella is a beautiful marine diatom
In the video we see life in free-living colony of these diatoms
We can observe various stages of division

Wow indeed. I had no idea there was so much variety and so many strange forms before I came to this forum!

I was wondering if it was from the Atlantic or the Mediterrainian. I was thinking the warming water is probably making them grow very fast now. :)

Here's a map view.

Hi Mitch
In the Parque Albufera are numerous aquatic habitats. Rice fields, Lake La Albufera freshwater - and an enormous lake fed by the Mediterranean Sea.
In some places, these habitats are reported. For this reason it is located "rare" species and freshwater and saltwater, as striatella, marine diatom and other unidentified ciliates, yet, in the forum
